Winter tire question about Chevy Prizm - need help

I just purchased a 2001 Chevy Prizm so I don't know it handles in winter. It needs new tires no matter what - so my question is : What tires do I need for a terrible winter ? Do I need all 4 snow tires? Can I get all season tires? Can I get 2 snow tires and 2 regular tires? 2 snow tires and 2 all season tires? I would like to save myself money in the long run by having at least 2 tires that I can still use throughout the year, but definitely safety comes first. If anyone has had one of these cars in winter, please let me know what you found to be the best. Thanks. (I know this isn't just for fun but there really wasn't a category that it fit into).

  • I wasn't aware there was such a thing as snow tires anymore.
    Is it a manual or automatic?
    4 cyl or 6?
    All wheel drive or front?
